Students working in small groups will transform their bodies to simulate organs or other body systems (part of the 4th grade objectives).  Systems (actors and organs) must work in tandem.   The actions of one impact the actions/reactions of another.  In Part 2 of this lesson, the students will use their organs to create a story.  This lesson could also be used with machines to connect to mechanical science or teach other interconnected systems (e.g., political systems, food chains, life cycles).  This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Fourth Grade Curriculum.
